At this audacious prediction the king bunt

in the Albany (N. Y.) papers that six of the
twelve jurymen who oonvloted Mrs. Hartung
of murder, compromised on the verdict, with
the positive understanding that sentence of
death would be commuted. It is' said that
one of the jury, shortly after her trial, visited
her in prison, expressing his sorrow, and
stating to her that he would never have con

positively assured by those in favor of such a
verdict tnat ner sentence would be commuted.
A few such cases as this will go far to under

Embbsob ob Cohvbbsatioh. Ralph Waldo
Emerson said in a recent lecture at Boston;
"Conversation is a game to which a wise man
goes, not only to play upon others, but to be
played npon himself. The use of conversa
tion is the light that it throws upon the
highest mysteries. When we seek its highest
benefits the old Spartan rule of one to oae, is
usually euforeed. Discourse, when it rises to
its highest pitch, is between two. We think
In an awful, antiquity. Our thoughts run
back through all the thinkers of time. Noth
ing seems so cheap as the benefit of conversa
tion; nothing is more rare. The only sin we
never forgive is difference of opinion. This it
at once the logio of persecution and of love,
In conversation there must be infinite recep
tion as well as giving."

occurs this very pointed sentence: "Let the
American State hang his body, the American
Ohuroh damn his soul with it breath ofcurnngi
still, the blessing of such as are ready to per
